Ever wanted to know the exact name of your installed Linux distribution?

Type this command into shell and find out what Linux distro you are using:
cat /etc/issue
It gives you something like this:
Ubuntu 8.04.1 \n \l
If you don't know the kernel you are running with try this one:
uname -a
It gives you something like this:
Linux machinename 2.6.24-19-generic #1 SMP Wed Jun 4 16:35:01 UTC 2008 i686 GNU/Linux
